Since you mentioned FB2, I didn't think you did, that's why I adjusted the instructions to use FB2 in place of OD.
You "tried"? to perform the upgrade? What happened? Did it work or was the button grayed out?
Use this site: Windows Media Player Security Component Upgrade Fix (DRM)
to check your SU, and if all your Active X controls are working properly.
It also has some different steps to try below the Active X Link.
Even if you believe the files are not protected they may have had a DRM slipped in.
See here on how to check to be sure: Windows 7: How to Check If a Video or Music File is DRM Protected
It will also check audio files.
to mention earlier that,
- You should restart your machine after the security upgrade (SU), it doesn't require it in the instructions, but I would do it.
- The SU should be compatible with your geographical location.
- Those four files should be recreated after the upgrade/restart.
- If the audiobook still won't play, it may be because it has a different DRM country code than yours. It's all about copyrights anymore.
I have to go for a while, I will check back later.
